Trone Brothers expected to have
their show ready for last Monday and
Tuesday but as they had not perfected
their troupe at that time, they decided
not to give a performance as they did
not care to open their show without
their full fore of performers. They
expect to have every thing in readiness
soon, and will then introduce to the
public one of the very best acrobatic
shows ever seen in this town,

The man who gives a loaf of bread
to a starving family is a be.ter Chris
tion than the man who spends his
time praying to the Lord to help the 1
destitute while he would equeeze a
dollar hard enough to make the eagle
scream before h. would give it to

to help the poor, instead of wearing I
out the knees of your pants asking
the Lord to do that which common

The newspapers of a town are its
looking glasses. It is here you see
yourselves as others see you. You
smile on them, they smile back at
you; you frown on them and you are
repaid in kiudness. They are the
reflex of the town. If the town is
doing bausines, the newspaper will
show it in its advertising cohimn-.
If t'he merchants are spiritless, shift.
